about

O'Neill's Ghosts is told from the tormented perspective of Eugene O'Neill as he struggles with his latest writing while being haunted by the ghosts of his alcoholic-suicidal son, Bud; his career-plagued father, James; his dope-fiend mother, Ella; and debauched older brother Jamie. O'Neill suffers pangs of conscience while ravaging his family's troubled history as plot fodder for his many plays, but it doesn't stop him from pushing the pen. The drama is set in 1912, in a coastal Connecticut home. As O'Neill arduously tries to concentrate on his latest work, he is haunted by the years of paternal neglect toward his eldest son, Eugene O'Neill Jr. This relationship is reminiscent of the interactions with his own father James, mother Ella and brother Jamie. In the meanwhile, his long-suffering but dutiful wife, Carlotta struggles to uphold his privacy. The interruptions include a series of frantic calls from the family attorney concerning Eugene's son Bud and Carlotta's overwrought concern for their ailing dog. From her own perspective, the family's surly Irish maid, Maude, grows even more disgusted as she tries to make sense of the family's dysfunction.
